Scientific Workflows Use Cases

These use cases describe how researchers can complete a large--and sometimes intricately complex--set of computing tasks required by their research on XSEDE resources.

Data-intensive research is becoming increasingly common, and novel research problems require many data processing tasks to assemble the right data, put it into forms suitable for advanced analysis techniques, and convert the resulting output into useful forms for answering research questions. It's important to automate these tasks in order to complete research projects in a practical amount of time without distracting researchers from their day-to-day work. "Scientific workflow" is the term most commonly used to describe this style of work.
